Secrets, book one of the Rune Trilogy Juliet Adams is more normal than an Oregon thunderstorm. Working as a nurse at Rose Village Assisted Living allows her to live vicariously through the past adventures of one of her patients. Still, she longs for her own adventures, and she thinks she’ll find them when she marries the love of her life.
However, when her fiancé dumps her six months before the wedding, she is crushed. She’s always felt like a failure – the self-dubbed black sheep of her family, even – so the breakup is another failure on a very long list.
Broken-hearted and in dire need of support, Juliet gives into her sister’s attempts to bond and agrees to spend a week on the coast. Still, Juliet can't seem to escape the reminders of her loneliness despite the joy surrounding her. Pained and desperate for solace, she flees and finds a mysterious glowing cave, where an equally mysterious man is, naked and injured.
This chance encounter with the undeniably magnetic Marsh Darrow sends her on a whirlwind adventure, filled with myth, legend, and paranormal creatures. As her idea of normal falls apart, Juliet discovers an inner courage that shows her she is truly more than she ever dreamed -- the prophetic key to a war that centers around centuries-old secrets.
